Network news only admits there are 5 stories in the world any given week (including Scott Peterson, Kobe Bryant, etc.) Cable news doubles that to 10. Fox cable, with the Shepard Smith show (I forget the name) is the only one that even hints there might be another 10 interesting or significant stories out there hiding in the weeds. Then one shifts to the internet to find out 'the rest of the story' on those hints and discovers hundreds more. If society as a whole was reasonably intelligent and remotely interested in being informed, the television networks would be in serious trouble. But, as shown by the popularity of 'reality' programming, the networks need not fear.

Rutten's problem is that he does not understand his own beliefs: to him, Fox news is not guilty of bias but of heresy.

This is not a new thing for Rutten; some time ago, he made a big deal; about how he was the
big pre-911 go to guy, rather than John Miller;
even though Miller, did the first big interview
with Bin Laden; back around 1998; first on ABC
then Esquire et al.
